Match Customer Invoice to Credit Note

This document explains how you record a payment by matching customer invoices and credit notes, so-called netting. Usually you would not do this without a prior arrangement with the payer.


Invoices are recorded as paid. A report of the matching is printed (ARS206PF) together with a customer payment journal and an accounting journal.

You can send the report to the payer.

Accounts receivable and the general ledger are updated. Value type 40 = 'Not remitted' is updated in 'Accounts Receivable. Display Balances' (ARS225). The following account entries are created:

Accounting Rule Account Debit Credit
* Customer (trans. code 20)   x
* Customer (trans. code 20) x  

*Account entry based on the original customer invoice.
